Last year the cold kept the 2011 shrimp season on hold until June, but this year local waters are teaming with the delicious little fellows. 

Normally, the shrimp season starts mid to late May but this year it's started early. In March shrimping boats were surprised to see the amount of booty in the open, federal waters which helped give the early start to the season for near water shrimpers.
